I knew some of what was arriving there, just not everything.  How it was configured I didn’t know, and this fata morgana version from a half dozen miles out didn’t help, especially since it looked a bit like a sea monster.

It had rained twice already this afternoon, and with a long rain the day before,  even more moisture stretched the lines of the illusion. 

HOS Mystique came into the boro yesterday for the first time ever, I believe. In that link, you’ll see specifics on the entire fleet of Hornbeck Offshore support vessels.

Some specifics on HOS Mystique include launch date  2008, offering 49 berths, sporting a 100t knuckle boom crane, and  measuring 250′ loa x 54′ x 14′ .  That crane can connect to a host of applications “dangling” in the water column.  I’m not sure what application(s) she has recently worked with.

She came into the boro late yesterday afternoon and

headed over to Elizabethport.  Currently she’s there, no doubt, to refuel, resupply, shift crew, discharge any physical samples, or do a host of other shoreside activities.

All photos, WVD, who was first introduced to Hornbeck in the sixth boro when they had a petroleum transportation fleet. That fleet is now operated by Genesis Energy.  A few years back, I saw lots of HOS vessels was along Bayou Lafourche.
